EXTRACT – Following the anti-Monsanto activism launched by nations like France and Hungary, Poland has announced that it will launch a complete ban on growing Monsanto’s genetically modified strain MON810. The announcement, made by Agriculture Minister Marek Sawicki, sets yet another international standard against Monsanto’s genetically modified creations. In addition to being linked to a plethora health ailments, Sawicki says that the pollen originating from this GM strain may actually be devastating the already dwindling bee population.

    A waste of time sadly. Mexico tried to protect it’s unique chilli varieties but GM seeds were ‘introduced’ by subterfuge and their crop is now full of GM.
    A bloke driving through Poland could just throw GM seeds out of the window along the highways and the local crops will quickly cross pollinate.
    Note the yellow rapeseed GM crop that now covers most of the countries roads and roundabouts in the UK despite ‘careful’ management.
    Pollen doesn’t understand careful management and can travel hundreds of miles in the atmosphere in a day.

    Hi Tap, Myself I have never seen bees collecting corn pollen.
    They now avoid Rape fields because it’s poisonous.
    What they did not know was that poison had been introduced into some plant stems.
    Whilst the bees walked on the plants they were taking in poison through their feet.
    This is I believe what caused the Mary Celeste Syndrome or CCD.
    I doubt pollen in the air kills bees, as bees in Towns and Villages seem OK.
    The danger is in the Countryside on farmed land, producing food that we eat.
